Au­to­mated may­day sys­tems Dop­pler ad­di­tions

Both Ray­ma­rine and Simrad have an­nounced Dop­pler fea­tures for their solid-state ma­rine radar sys­tems, thus join­ing Furuno and Garmin in of­fer­ing the ad­vanced, easy-to-use col­li­sion-avoid­ance radar tech­nol­ogy.

Simrad is sched­uled to of­fer own­ers the abil­ity to un­lock the Ve­loc­i­tyTrack Dop­pler fea­ture in its Halo pulse-com­pres­sion open-ar­ray radar sys­tems for a one-time $500 charge be­gin­ning in June. Ve­loc­i­tyTrack will high­light mov­ing tar­gets that pose a col­li­sion threat in a con­trast­ing color, mak­ing them easy to rec­og­nize.

Ray­ma­rine has in­te­grated Dop­pler tech­nol­ogy into its new Quan­tum 2 dome radar with chirp pulse com­pres­sion ($1,999 MSRP). In ad­di­tion to iden­ti­fy­ing and color-cod­ing mov­ing radar con­tacts that pose a threat, the Quan­tum 2’s ex­clu­sive Safety Sec­tor fea­ture high­lights tar­gets in the path of your ves­sel — whether they are mov­ing or sta­tion­ary.
